    I've built 3 now using two 4.6 metre lengths of wood from the local timber merchants that cost about 11 each to make the two legs plus other bits and pieces that I had including some decking boards.Attachment 23207Attachment 23206Attachment 23207

    I use coach bolts from Screwfix. Plus once raised I bolt it to the tree using 10cm bolts and use a couple of planks to secure it to the tree so it is solid. Works a treat.

    Regards David

    A simple contraption made of rough-sawn oak and an aluminium ladder section.
    A threaded rod goes through a hollow ladder rung to firmly anchor the wood to the metal.

    Am not trying to be smart here but I am not sure that complies with the necessary regulations. Hope I am wrong because being over cautious has stopped me doing a similar thing.

    BASC have plans on their website (Document Summary).

    Don't think it will be 4 meters high but guess you could increase the length of the uprights to suit - bit heavy to be carting around if you don't want to leave it in situ though

    Thanks for the info . I will leave it in situ so the extra weight from the lentgh is no prob. I was considering using my tree surgery climbing gear and going up with the ropes haha....
